Strategic Consolidation

  • OFCC (OHIO FACILITIES CONSTRUCTION COMMISSION) REPORT

    In the fall of 2017, the PCSD engaged with the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC) to complete an assessment of all district-owned properties. Click this link to view a summary of the OFCC report.

    EDUCATIONAL VISIONING 

    In January 2018, the PCSD then engaged with the Harrison Planning Group, who led Educational Visioning Workshops.  These workshops included community stakeholder groups such as parents, students, teachers, administrators and community members.  Topics discussed included lesson delivery, student achievement and structure of school buildings.  To view more information about the Educational Visioning Workshops, click here: https://www.parmacityschools.org/Page/7873.

    STRATEGIC CONSOLIDATION

    Later that spring, the PCSD submitted an RFQ (Request for Qualifications) for design firms in the area. The design firm that will be guiding our district through the Strategic Consolidation process will be GPD Group (gpdgroup.com). After several informational and input sessions with the community, a recommendation was made to the Board of Education to construct two new secondary campuses (grades 6-12) and renovate Parma Senior High School into an educational and community wellness center in phase one, and construct 6 new elementary schools in phase two.


    ISSUE 73

    On November 3, 2020, voters will consider Issue 73, the district's new construction bond issue. If voters approve Issue 75, the new construction bond issue, PCSD will build two new secondary campuses (grades 6 - 12) on the current sites of Normandy and Valley Forge. We will also transform Parma Senior High School into a community educational and wellness center, in partnership with University Hospitals. The state of Ohio, through the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC), will contribute $69 million toward the cost of these projects and homeowners will contribut $18.96 per month per $100,000 of their property value.
